Hi Greg -

I'm interested in trying out your patch, and
have been working in a similar area. I have added a "d"
format specifier that will include the revision number of
the "dead" revision when a file is deleted.  (We need this
to get the rcs log message for the deleted file so we
can scan the message for a numerical identifier to hook
it to an external "commit notice" facility.)

I'm particularly interested in your "t" specifier, as I was
thinking along similar lines.  One question - will {t} retrieve
the cvs branch name?  Or will it only retrieve a tag associated
with the specific revision that was committed?

I would like a format specifier that finds the branch tag
for a commited file... I was thinking about using "b".

Thanks very much for sharing your work.
